Crime in any one area or even address is a matter of public record. You can check with the police. I would go in person and speak to an officer who is frequently in the immediate area of your concern. They will know all about it.

It's a good idea to ask around and contact the local police department, if you are interested in information on home values in Athens, I can certainly help with that.

All the best!

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Sharon:

As a Realtor, I actually cannot comment on individual neighborhoods relative to crime or schools, because it is a violation of license law and could be considered an attempt on my part to steer you toward or away from a particular subdivision. However, I can tell you that if you go to the Athens-Clarke County website (http://athensclarkecounty.com/index.aspx?NID=201), then click on the "Crime Reports" link, you can input the street name, and you'll see on the map all the crimes that have been reported in and around that area.

I can also tell you without violating any rules that my real estate team has had listings in that neighborhood, and we've helped several buyers find homes there as well. In fact, one of my other partners used to live a few streets over from Sapphire Court. If you'd like further information, I'd be glad to help in any way I can...just e-mail me at u2gw@hotmail.com.

Hope this helps answer you question!
